‘Saaho’ (2019) has received mixed reviews from critics and fans alike since its release, despite not reaching the desired targets down South, the Hindi version has managed to reach the Rs 100 crore mark. Director Sujeeth opened up about the criticism he has received.
Reported by TOI, the South director said in an interview with another daily that he can’t understand why he is getting so much backlash, “I made the film that Prabhas sir, my producers, and I believed in. The audiences came in large numbers to watch it, but still, I am being treated as harshly as if I have committed a crime.”
The ‘Saaho’ (2019) director further added, “I don’t know why all these reports targeting me are being published. I last gave interviews one day after the release of Saaho. Even when I say ‘no comments’, it is turned into an interview. And those quotes are now being used against me.”
It’s the first time the ‘Bahubali’ (2015) actor and Shraddha Kapoor have been paired together, the action-thriller also stars Neil Nitin Mukesh, Arun Vijay, Chunky Pandey, Jackie Shroff, Mahesh Manjrekar, Mandira Bedi, Evelyn Sharma, and Vennela Kishore.
